The purpose of this course is to promote experiential learning through the integration of classroom and applied work-based learning. The applied work-based learning takes the form of a mandatory 12 week work term where students have the opportunity to practice and apply what they learn in the hospitality curriculum in year two of the interdisciplinary diploma program. Students receive support and guidance to find and secure a work term placement from their instructor and also from the Employer Liaison Advisor and Experiential Education Advisors in Student Services. Through a work term placement, employers and educator share the responsibility to prepare the student for the rapidly changing social, economic and technological environment of the modern workplace.
